HOME SOLAR POWER: A Super Helpful Beginner’s Guide

In this video, we’re taking a closer look at solar power systems for homes. Solar power is often associated with living off-grid, but surprisingly there are a lot more people installing solar panels on homes that are connected to the grid. We met up with Albert from iSolara to learn about:

– Why people are installing solar at home: cost savings, sustainability, security
– The basic components of a solar power system: solar panel, inverter, racking system, battery
– Installation options for panels: roof mount, ground mount
– Costs and money-saving opportunities like net metering
– Important considerations including some of the risks to keep in mind when going solar: snow, ice, orientation, location
